brown follower. i think he's a little different, in my book, but that tweet he sent where the president made the gop a deal and he was jumping on a plane and all of a sudden the white house denied it's true and now we see that the house of representatives, for no apparent tangible reason, going to be back in session on sunday, i personally think scott brown tweeted something he wasn't supposed to. i think there is movement there, and i think maybe his tweet offers us a clue, even though nobody want to acknowledge the characters in kabuki theser. >> isn't that interesting. andrew, it all comes as the volatility index, the fear indicator in the market has been rising. we were back in yellow black territory, above 20 for the first time since july. which would mean that the market was actually getting sweaty palms here, don't you think? >> yeah. it's getting pretty chaotic. the interesting thing to me is you look at the volume. the volume is extremely low. look at a stock like apple. shares 20 million shares in a day. today half the volume. traded 10 million shares. came out and said the ho

that in the immortal words of joey brown in some like it hot, nobody's perfect, at least not when it comes to investing. why? not because i'm some kind of misanthrope, stock sadist who delights in spreading despair and making people miserable and not trying to make you hate stocks even more than you do in the wake of the flash crash, facebook ipo, so many examples of insider trading it's hard to count. i'm trying to help you cope with your own fallibility as investor to make sure you're as prepared as possible to avoid losses caused by the slings and arrows of an outrageous market or whips and scorns of a european politician. while also putting yourself in a position to maximize your profits when things are going well. yes, and you know we've got to do that because bulls make money and bears make money and hogs gets slaughtered. a diversified portfolio trumps conviction. used to have it on my pc. by never having all your stock eggs in one sector basket you'll never have to suffer through the agony of watching everything you own getting crushed when that basket gets run over by a truck or an oncoming tr
